FOTD: Lust vs. Greed

6 Jun

This high-contrast, smoky eye is one of a bajillion possible color combinations from the Wet N Wild Color Icon collection. As the title of this FOTD indicates, today I used the “Lust” & “Greed” palettes. Although I used pale pink from the lust palette on my inner eye, it translates as white, with a pink cast (a cool side effect of using cream eyeshadow as a base for your powdered eyeshadow).

BTW, my coil out is still going strong (Day 5)! I did have to re-coil a few hairs at the nape of my neck last night (that hair is extremely prone to tangling), but I’m gonna let the coil out ride for a few more days. In other news, I miss my big, voluminous curls 😦 *sheds a lonesome tear*

PRIMER: Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Matte e/s primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk (inner) & Black Bean (outer)

SHADOW: I covered the inner half of my eyelid in matte light pink (Lust).  Then I applied sparkly graphite gray to the outer half of my eye (Lust) & matte black (Greed) to darken the outer v. I applied matte peach to my brow bone (Greed) & used matte light pink to highlight my tearducts & the arches of my eyebrows (Lust).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. On my waterline I used WetNWild eyeliner pencil in turquoise & teal-colored eyeshadow from the Retro Chic palette (8805) by Black Radiance.

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

CHEEKS: WetNWild Blush in “Heather Silk” (on the apples of my cheeks)

LIPS: Carmex + “Stop Violence in the Home” lip gloss by The Body Shop
